30 Days Of Comics: Day 3: A Comic That Made You Cry

Amazing Spider-Man #248

"The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man".....Man, I am all goose-bumpy and verklempt just typing the title...

Most of the comic pictured above concerns a fight between Spider-Man and Thunderball. It's the "back-up" story that holds all the weight for me.

As I write this, I am not sure how much I want to give away. Maybe someone hasn't read the story or the Wikipedia synopsis.

The action of the story is "narrated" through a newspaper article on a young boy named Tim Hammond. Spider-Man visits him one evening, having heard about him through the newspaper article. The two swap stories for hours with Spider-Man recounting his greatest adventures. Even some of the details of his origin....

As the evening draws to a close, Tim asks who Spider-Man really is...and our hero tells him. Tim promises to keep his secret....


You can probably figure where the story goes from here....I just can't spoil it....but the next page......wow.
